Send email when a error occurs


#1

I have a script in ruby that build a software for me once per day and
when the code is wrong and a error, I don’t if the error has ocurred and
I don’t know what happened.

I wanna know how I can saw the error, I want that this script tell me
what happenend by email.

Thanks,

Ivan

Search for the docs on Net::SMTP in the ruby standard library.

How are you running it daily? If running from cron, then cron should
capture
your script’s output and mail it to the cron user’s uid.

Otherwise you could do something like
IO.popen(“sendmail removed_email_address@domain.invalid”,“w”) do |io|
io << EOM
From: system@yourhost
To: removed_email_address@domain.invalid

Something nasty has happened!
EOM
end

YMMV (you didn’t say if this was Windows or Linux/Unix or something
else)
